1957 Mobylette AV76

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

A classic old French moped, dragged out of a barn and put back on the road. I found this in the back of a barn, missing its front wheel. It had been there for decades. Found a front wheel, cleaned the carb and points and it went! Added a wooden wine box as a top box, and use it for visiting the local Boulangerie – it’s called the Bunne Shoppe Flyer! Currently in disgrace as I flew to the bun shop, and it wouldn’t start when I came out. had to pedal it a mile home – uphill. Thought it was the condensor, changed that and no spark still, so suspect it’s the magneto.
